Riff Raff

Riff Raff

by Timothy J. Stewart

One day on a whim,
Mr. Riff went for a swim
While enjoying this outdoor bath,
Out of no where came Mr. Raff.

Mr. Raff stood on the shore
And told Mr. Riff to swim no more.
Mr. Riff said with a grin
“If you want me out, then come on in.”

Mr. Raff said, “If I do,
There’ll be nothing left of you!”
Mr. Riff just gave a laugh
So in the water jumped Mr. Raff.

When Mr. Raff reached Mr. Riff

He felt his anger start to lift
The cool water cleared his head
He looked at Mr. Riff and said,

“My name, good sir, is Mr. Raff,
You’ve chosen my pond for your bath.”
“Anyone who swims in this pool,
I always thought, must be a fool.”

“My name, is Mr. Riff, you see,
And this pool looked so nice to me.”
“The water here is very fine,
I didn’t see a ‘No Swimming’ sign”

“From now on,” Said Mr. Raff
You may use this pool for your bath”
“Anytime you get a whim,
Just jump right in and take a swim”

Then Mr. Raff left for a time.
He soon returned with another sign.
The message on it was very clear,
“Only Riff Raff are welcome here.”
